Education Lobby Spending Millions to Block Budget Cuts

"With at least $16 billion in federal funds and grants at stake next year if the government goes over the fiscal cliff, the nation's universities and primary and secondary education systems are waging an unprecedented lobbying effort of more than $67 million to protect those funds from automatic cuts set to take effect in January."
Obama's a lame duck president who already got their contributions and votes. How much you wanna bet Obama's more interested in hanging the Republicans on this fiscal cliff petard than he wants to placate the teachers union?

But what I want to know is who has $67 million lying around to entice lawmakers?
